A Chinese worker looks at the main dam of the Three Gorges project
during its construction in Yichang, Hubei province, September 1, 2002.
More than 1.13 million residents in the Three Gorges area along the
Yangtze River are being displaced by the project, which aims to control
the country's mighty Yangtze River and generate electricity. The Three
Gorges Dam project is thought to have cost more than any other single
construction project in China's history, with unofficial estimates as
high as $75 billion or more. Picture taken September 1, 2002.
